The linear electro-optical effect was induced in optical fibers by thermal poling. A Sagnac all-spliced fiber loop was constructed incorporating an electro-optical fiber used as a phase modulator at 1.5 μ m and stable switching was obtained. A rise time of 40 ns was obtained, and signals < 2 V generated a measurable optical response.
